Joshua Kravitz

I’m a technologist looking to make a difference.

I lead technology modernization efforts on the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations. Before coming to the Senate, I worked on the House Committee on Oversight and Reform through the TechCongress Program, with a focus on IT modernization, customer experience, and data governance.

After graduating in June 2020 from Stanford University with a B.S. in computer science (focus: systems and AI) and M.S. in statistics (focus: causal inference), I dove into the world of political campaigns: I was Deputy Data Director on Jon Ossoff’s campaign for U.S. Senate and Data Director on Sri Kulkarni’s congressional campaign.

While I wasn’t researching new methods for estimating causal effects at Stanford, I oversaw the student leadership team for Camp Kesem at Stanford.

In my free time, I watch TV, read, play jazz piano, bake sourdough, and improvise. To me, improvisation is more than a fun hobby – it’s a way of life. My favorite improv maxims are “Say Yes,” “Follow the Fear,” and “Mistakes are Gifts.”
